For years now, right-wing MAGA Republicans have mocked other Americans with terms like “snowflake” and declarations like “f*ck your feelings.” MAGA Republicans mockingly like to ask anyone they view as progressive or liberal if “they need a safe space” when someone is offended by their words or deeds. In an incredibly ironic twist, Georgia Congresswoman and staunch MAGA Trump supporter, Marjorie Taylor Greene is now calling for conservatives to have their own “safe space.”
Greene made her declaration on Sean Hannity’s Fox program Tuesday night.
“We want our own safe space and we deserve it,” she told Hannity. She also said, “We’re fed up with Democrat policies, we’re fed up with the woke ideology being shoved down our throat, and we’re tired of our children being brainwashed into these same ideas.”
This is along the same lines as Greene’s calls for a “national divorce” between red states and blue states. Some have interpreted her repeated calls for that divorce as a desire to secede from the United States, but Greene insists that is not so. On Hannity’s broadcast, Greene said that she just wanted conservatives to have a safe space. Apparently Greene is unfamiliar with bipartisanship and sees the nation as either all blue or all red in each state, with no crossover. It seems she wants a country that is more divided or even segregated where Democrats stay in their states, and Republicans stay in theirs. Greene’s America is one where people like her can be free of ever experiencing any different ideas or viewpoints.
Recently, the Georgia MAGA congressional member complained about being verbally attacked by a woman and her son in a restaurant. She, nor anyone else has provided any proof of that incident which seems odd in this era of everyone having a video camera on their phone. Greene is apparently upset that someone might shout at her, even though she made a spectacle of herself trying to shout down President Biden at the State of the Union speech last month. Her behavior there was criticized by people from across the political spectrum.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been the target of many attacks from Greene and other MAGA Republicans seized the opportunity to clap back at Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Omar wrote on Twitter, “Republicans ridiculed ‘safe spaces’ and called people ‘snowflakes’, this coming from one of their leaders is literally hilarious.”
